Russian composers E. Voronovsky (music, synths, tapes, drones) and A. Tzarev (sound construction and digital editing) are responsible for our 24th release, which has been previously released as CDR on the Insofar Vapour Bulk catalog in 2000. Regardless we are very proud to make this material available to you, as its content is utterly timeless.
Landschaft is an epic work of deeply emotional/dramatic drones, carrying with them the Cisfinitum trademark which successfully combines electro-acoustic sources with a wide arsenal of Soviet analog effect processors. Eugeny Voronovski is also a professional violin player, which has undoubtedly contributed to the fact that "Landschaft" is nothing short of mindbending.
Expect more Cisfinitum in the future, but if you can't wait, you could always check out their other (highly recommended) releases on Waystyx and Drone Records.

beauty and sadness at their best
This is the most haunting release I've ever found on archive.org (3 years ago) "Landschaft" is a perfect mix of 2 kinds of ambient music : experimental/droning stuff one one side, but also emotional, carefully composed melodies. But these 2 elements are extremely well balanced and the overall sound is very organic. (although the (shortest) opening and closing tracks are more directly melodic) than the long 2nd and 3rd track)
The beauty and sadness of the final piece "Delta District", its splendid chord progression and whispering sounds, make this one my favourite in the album. It gives me the same spacious and melancolic feeling that you can have when facing the sea at night with a head full of memories. The perfect soundtrack for remembering all what you've lost...
N.B. : This is my 1st review on archive.org because I'm not very self-confident regarding my english writing abilities, but I had to review this one, that is a bit underrated IMO. If numbers had a meaning I would rate it 6/5..

Built from the foundation of lucidity, Cisfinitum's "Landschaft" treks through enigmatic peaks and valleys of sound and noise and cleanses one of all present peculiarities --- a transmission of music over spontaneous roughness.

Give it a try
More scarrying then the most scarrying movies of David Lynch. A sound I've never heard before.

This is flowing ambient/dark ambient from Russian project called Cisfinitum (mainly one person - E. Voronovsky, who was studying to be violinist originally and turned to experimental/ambient music). I'm really glad that this record (originally released in 2000) is now available to anyone, since its an obscure classic in its own genre, no less.
Small notice, though - most of these tracks are extremely long and that is one of my reasons to take out 1 star. Other then that, it can be used as a fine background music for, say, imaginary Tarkovsky movie.
